A Very Special Event to Us: LPL Chinle AZ for Native American Women

We have a dream that our gloriously faithful God is bringing to pass. All of us on the Living Proof-LifeWay team involved in Living Proof Live would give anything if we could just throw open the doors to our events and do them free of charge. You cannot imagine how thrilling that would be for all of us. Event costs are grossly prohibitive and the only way to cover a non-ticketed event is to take up offerings perhaps even multiple times during the gathering. If you’ve been to large events, that’s why you’ve seen one of two practices: they are either ticketed or supported by offerings. Neither way is ideal and, with God’s leadership and with right hearts and motives and godly stewardship, neither way is wrong. In our structuring, we’ve met costs through ticketing then given away as many scholarships as possible – primarily behind the scenes – so that ticket costs would not prohibit women who so desired to attend from coming.

At the same time we’ve had this deep wish to do a throw-open-the-door event, God placed a dream on another woman’s heart – one woman’s heart – who leads Bible study and ministers to Native American women in Arizona. Her great desire was to bring Living Proof Live to Chinle to sow wider seed of God’s Word into that fertile soil in order that many more would be saved, transformed by the power of the Spirit, informed about discipleship opportunities then discipled in ongoing Bible studies from that point forward.  THAT, my friends, is some kind of vision! Keep in mind, all of what I’m about to share with you was placed by God on ONE FAITHFUL WOMAN’S HEART who was willing to pray with feverish faith and believe Him wildly for the people she dearly loves. As she presented this deep desire to the LifeWay team and the LifeWay team shared it with me, our eyes grew wide and our hearts leapt in our chests. We cried out, “YES!!!!!! Our answer is yes! We don’t know how we’ll do this but Jesus will show us!”

And this is the unfolding result:

LPL Chinle, AZ is a unique one-day ministry event that will serve the Native American women among the Navajo, Apache, Hopi, Ute, and Zuni tribes.  It will be funded entirely by a scholarship program in which women from all over the country can provide a scholarship ticket on behalf of a Native American woman. Women sowing into women. It doesn’t get better than that.

Who is invited to attend this event?
Native American women living and/or working and serving on a Native American Reservation. We want so much to serve these beautiful women and sow into a great harvest of God among them that could have effects for every generation of their descendants until Christ’s kingdom comes.

Here are two ways to participate:

  1. Provide a scholarship for a Native American woman to attend.  lifeway.com/chinle ($25) AND PRAY PRAY PRAY PRAY PRAY PRAY PRAY!!!! Pray BIG. Pray BOLDLY. Pray SPECIFICALLY. We promise to give you glimpses of what God is doing that weekend through Periscope (if we have good connections) and videos and tweets. You’ll be able to keep up with the event through social media and see answers to your prayers – please Lord Jesus! – and fruit of your generosity.
  2. If you qualify to attend, reserve your free ticket!  As a Native American woman in the region, you qualify to participate just by reserving a free ticket: lifeway.com/chinle. ($5 suggested donation at the door to cover lunch)

We will gather together in the worship of our worthy and living God and in the study of His Word on Saturday, October 8, 2016 in the Chinle High School Wildcat Den.  We are believing God to do something WAY BEYOND what we could plan or ask or accomplish. Something none of us at the event will ever forget, ever get over and ever cease to see the effects of. We are powerless to make this happen. Jesus alone can do what we’re seeking. Please pray that He will. Please pray that He will show tremendous favor to this event. We want to please Him so much. No, we want to do more than that. We want to DELIGHT Him. THANK YOU, SISTERS!!!

    Kristi says:

    Just purchased 4 scholarships but also wanted to pay for the 4 ladies lunches. Can you add a line to add the lunches in?

      LPM-KMac says:

      Kristi, this is just lovely! I will ask Lifeway about your request to also cover lunches.

    • 1.2
      Andrea Cox says:

      Great idea, Kristi! If the lunches becomes an option, I’ll pay for the lunches for the two scholarships I bought too.

    • 1.3
      LPM-KMac says:

      Kristi, you’ll be blessed to know that Lifeway shared with us that the local women have asked for the opportunity/privilege to be able to pay for the lunches. So it’s merely a suggested donation for attendees only. It’s not required that they pay for their lunch. But your generosity is overwhelming!

    Ms. Beth, this event spoke to my heart the first time I heard about it. Meeting Paula at LPL Reno stirred my heart even more. I was moved to tears when I worked at the table and looked up and saw all the women in line wanting to bless these women. My hand was shaking so hard I could barely run the card through the machine-:).

    I decided I could purchase a scholarship ticket every month up to the event. I am asking my FB, Twitter friends, email contacts, friends/family, etc to help as well.

    I am joining Paula, the LifeWay gals and you in prayer to see this event come to pass.

    Love ya!

    I cannot stop the tears rolling down my cheeks. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this opportunity to provide scholarships for this sacred event. I have been blessed to provide three scholarships to the event, for a three-fold cord of women who are able to attend as a result of this provision. My background is Cherokee, and although far removed generationally and physically from the reservation, the blood flows through my veins nonetheless. I almost couldn’t hit the purchase button fast enough. That’s how blessed I feel to give. Thank you, thank you, thank you again for the privilege of participating in this event in however small way I can. I’ve already started praying, and the tears are still rolling down my cheeks. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

    Cannot wait to participate in funding these beautiful ladies’ opportunity to attend this event. I sincerely want them to enjoy and benefit spiritually as I have by attending Beth Moore events and Bible studies.

    To God be the Glory, for ever and ever, Amen.

    Thank you or the opportunity to be able to join God in such a wonderful event and to be able to provide scholarships for these awesome women! May God multiply these gifts so that all that want to attend are able to! May hearts be open to receive His life giving Word and may His love for each and every woman attending be so real to them, that they are touched in such a mighty way that it brings revival among these beautiful women and their families! Whoo hoo I bless the Lord with all my heart! Thank you again for this o opportunity to come alongside you!

    This is FANTASTIC! I can barely type this because I am so excited about this amazing opportunity for every woman who can attend. I will be purchasing 4 tickets for 4 women as soon as I send this comment. I’ll be praying and believing in BIG things for this event and every single attendee. xoxo

    Amy Beth says:

    I LOVE THIS! Two years ago, I took 16 college students to Cherokee, NC to study Native American culture as part of my job at the university where I work. To be honest, I didn’t have a lot of interest in Native American culture before leading this trip but God taught me so much while I was there. I was so grateful for the opportunity to broaden my horizons and to learn from such a diverse, important culture. Can’t wait to see updates from this!

    Betty M says:

    Having a very diffocult year finacially but am going to at least pay for one scholarship. Wish it cpuld be more. If we all just do one..

    Susan says:

    I was laid off off my job two weeks ago, but will contribute $20 to cover four lunches and will contribute more as I am able. Though I am not a Native American woman, I experienced abuse growing-up and I know first-hand that is Jesus Christ who sets you free.

    Kelly says:

    This is wonderful! I would challenge everyone that is able to purchase two scholarships because we girls always want to go to an event with our friend. If two scholarships are not an option maybe you and your friend could each send one of these precious women?

  15. 15

    Just like God provided for and had control of what Nehemiah could not and did not when building the walls of Jerusalem, He is capable of providing what you can’t for the opportunity to build spiritual walls around these women! I’ll be praying. 🙂

    This is beautiful! I gladly offer a scholarship for such a wonderful event. I will be praying for this event and hope to be able to offer more at a later time. I will get to see Ms. Beth for the first time in person in April and I am SOOOOO excited. Thank you for including us in this event!

    I see that several have offered to pay for lunches too. Why not have the attendees bring their own lunches and use that money for more scholarships.

    Thank you for sharing about the LPL Chinle event! I am honored to help a Native American woman attend the event. I will be praying that God will bring forth a great harvest of souls, that women will be set free from bondage, and that the name of Jesus will be exalted. Praise God for the work He is doing and will continue to do!

    How fabulous!!!! Thank you for sharing this exciting news and hope I can help out in a small way soon. Lots of love and appreciation. I LOVE that one woman of God initiated this event. God Bless You all!

    What a unique blessing this day will be. I’m eager to pray for “my” woman who will experience the love of Christ through Beth’s teaching. What a wonderful idea!

    Deb Mott says:

    Excited to give. Excited to know His Word does not come back void so know He will do a great work! Thank you for joining Him in His great works!

    Would you consider doing something similar for Miami LPL? I am praying and believing for great redemption there! GREAT NUMBERS OF SALVATIONS! Maybe this blog and twitter and other avenues as LORD leads, would support more scholarships than you ever could imagine. Something to consider, obviously in prayer as you all always do pray!
    I know personally last year Tampa LPL about 20-25 friends/ those in my community attended that could not have attended without free ticket. THANK YOU ALL!

    Thank you for opening the opportunity to give like this blog tonight. I plan to give but need to wait til tomorrow.

    Andrea Cox says:

    Bought two scholarships. Like Kristi, I wish there was a way I could pay for the ladies’ lunches. If Lifeway can’t work it out to add a tab for that, is there a place I may mail a check?


    Howe, TX

    (Is it okay if I keep putting my hometown on here? I’m in the habit after the SSMT year. Still learning more verses this year, by the way. A smaller amount, but enough to keep the good times rolling, as they say.)

        Thanks for letting me know, KMAC! This is going to be such an amazing event. So glad Beth’s doing it. May the Lord bless all those women (and Beth too, of course).

    I am currently facilitating Beth’s bible study on “Esther…it’s tough being a woman” for the women at my church. There’s nothing tough about my decision though, to jump on this bandwagon and help with this cause to see what God has in store for our sisters in AZ. Thank you to everyone at LPM. You ladies have been my “life-line” many, many times. God Bless! Prayers from Arkansas.

    Lori Willey says:

    Blessed and delighted by your announcement. I am with a newly formed group called Native Strong~ Authentic Relationship with the Creator. We are seeing full on revival starting up here in the last months. Support has been self-supplied as we all have day jobs so we can afford to travel and minister and write/produce material. I understand your financial crunch and will be praying for God to miraculously supply your needs and make it easy for you all if it comes to sacrifice. These women are worth every effort and deeply loved. You will be the ones blessed.

    Leah Adams says:

    This is one of those giving opportunities that I did not even have to pray about. I knew immediately that Jesus wanted me to offer a scholarship. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be part of what HE will do in Chinle! Praying for this event.

    Sarah Walker says:

    When I was 19, I led a group of youth from my church on a mission trip to the Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona. 19 may seem young, but an evangelist in our church, Walter K. Ayers, ministered regularly to the Apache and I worked as an intern for him that summer. Anyway, this is exciting to me because some of the women I served in 1989 may be attending this conference! I’m praying that is the case and was privileged to provide a scholarship. Thanks for your ministry!

    This is such a wonderful blessing! I have paid for one scholarship. Praying for this lady whoever she may be and all the other ladies who will attend this event. The date of the event is my MIL birthday so I should remember that date for sure! Praying for many, many blessings for the women attending and to the other ladies who are donating scholarships. I just love this. Makes me teary eyed!!!!

    Tatia says:

    HOW EXCITING!! Got Holy Spirit goosebumps all over me while watching that video 🙂 How beautiful the creativity of our Father in bringing this together!

    Remind us to pray, O Lord, for it will be in Your Great Power alone that the enemy’s bonds will be broken and Your Light will shine into that darkness!

    Bonnie Bolander says:

    I will be absolutely participating in this through scholarship support! How exciting. I ministered to the Navajo women and children YEARS ago in Round Rock, AZ. Still remember “I have decided to follow Jesus” in Navajo! What a blessing…Paying and praying! 🙂

    Angela Frantz says:

    I so wish i could give, but i will definitely be praying, that is so awesome!!! My great great grandma was full Cherokee. Yay!!!

  34. 34

    This is WONDERFUL!!!!
    I cannot tell you how I’ve longed for an opportunity like this for the Native women of the Southwest!!
    I write fiction based on The Long Walk, and the terrible years of Hweeldi. I’ve felt for years, as I’ve researched and studied and prayed for the Navajo Nation, that very soon, God is about to blow open the gates.
    As we all know, women are the core of every family. I am so thrilled to hear about this, and I’m thrilled that all Native women are able to come. I will pray about scholarships and hope to provide at least one.

    This is such a beautiful, beautiful vision for these women and the communities that they love. I bawled my eyes out. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to support it and to pray over it.

    Amy says:

    What a joy and privilege to love on these ladies! I couldn’t stop the lump from forming and the tears from coming listening to our sisters share their hearts. I will be sharing this opportunity at our study tonight and will be praying for Jesus to absolutely BLOW THEM AWAY with His presence! Much love to all of you at LPL!

  37. 37
    Bridget Frederick says:

    This is a beautiful thing you’re doing. I will be in prayer and will sponsor a Native woman to attend the LPL event. My Grandfather was half Cherokee. One of the many things I love about our God is the diversity he creates. Heaven will truly be beautiful. God Bless you Beth.

    Kristin A. says:

    Thank you for giving us this beautiful opportunity to join in as our Mighty God does mighty work among the Native people. I can barely hold myself together. Praise God! Praise God! Praise God! He is so Good! One glorious day in Heaven I will meet some beautiful women who met God on October 8, 2016 in the Chinle High School Wildcat Den and we will praise God together! I cannot wait!

    Anne says:

    Thank you for this opportunity to serve in a small yet powerful capacity!!! I have tears in my eyes as I think of what my $25 could mean in the life of one woman and how it may affect His Kingdom for generations to come!!! What a blessing! I look forward to praying my heart out for this event!!! I always look forward to LPL Recaps, this is goi g to be one that can not be beat!

    Chinle is so close to where I lived in the Four Corners region for 9 years. My dad worked as a dentist for the IHS (Indian Health Service) on the Navajo reservation when I was a child. Praying for a harvest, Beth! 🙂

  45. 45
    Deanne says:

    Would it be possible to receive periodic updates as to how many scholarships have been provided? Also, you might consider announcing the opportunity to purchase the scholarships at the other LPL events leading up to the LPL Chinle event.

    Karen R says:

    When I first heard of the event, I just cried. As a Native American woman, it blessed my heart to know that the women of Chinle will have an opportunity to hear about Jesus from our beloved teacher, Beth. I’ll be purchasing scholarships for my Native American sisters and I’ll be praying for a mighty harvest!

    Deborah Mott says:

    Thank you for the great video testimonials from these four sisters In Christ. Each of them spoke powerfully with a felt anointing.

    These words stood out:

    “Accepting one another for who that person is and not looking at what they were in the past, their sinful lives but the new person.”

    Wonderfully refreshing Gospel words.

    “My hope is to know God…He is the answer for me. No way I could have stopped drinking on my own.”
    “God gives us His Love and we need to receive Him . Only one Way, One God, Jesus.

    God is up to harvest. Women are looking and seeking for a better way. Christ is the Way, His Gospel, Receive His Love….”

    Thank you for the clear Gospel messages in these testimonies!
